One of the best westerns I have come across in a long time.

However, if your are a book listener as well as a book reader like me, than do yourself a favor and listen to this book instead. The narration in this audio book by Kristoffer Tabori is one of the best I have ever come across. His low guttural draw and raspy tones and the emotion he put into each sentence was just crazy beautiful.

I listened to this as an audiobook. The speaker was outstanding. I really enjoyed the story. I thought it flowed like an old John Wayne film

Beyond the Outposts is a wild wild west, cowboys and Indians round-up. This is a must for any fan of westerns. It's also great for anyone who just likes a good yarn.
